The Heat Plateau [Aug. 17th, 2019|08:57 pm]
It's that time of year where I stop checking what the weather is going to be tomorrow, because I know, the answer is "a hundred," and it's going to be "a hundred" for the foreseeable future.

Having the park no longer on the agenda for the kids makes things tricky. I guess there are pools? But those require way more prep and way more supervision on my part, since neither kid can swim.

I went out and ran a few miles in the afternoon last week, partially because I was stir-crazy and partially just to like... see what would happen. Turns out you get real sweaty and have to walk near the end, but that's about it. (Don't worry, I'm not nearly athletic enough to run distances that would put me in heat exhaustion territory.)

I will say though, I feel more equipped to dealing with being outside in the heat than being outside in the cold. I've got the summer strategy down: ice water, sundress, shade, fan, and melting into the nearest deck chair. It works. I'm not as good at being cold, I break down and want to go inside way more quickly.

The kids are weird, they don't seem to notice temperature at either end as much as Nate and I do.
